Update 100-year-old law, says SFO - National - NZ Herald News

. . .


Slated for dismantling under the previous Labour government, the New Zealand Serious Fraud Office is taking aim at corruption laws up to a century old.

"The Serious Fraud Office is signalling a greater focus on bribery and corruption and has asked the Government to review legislation dealing with such crimes, some of which is a century old" reports the New Zealand Herald.

They quote Feeley as saying their latest case exposes widespread shortcomings in New Zealand.

"There have been wider, and serious, issues raised by this investigation, including procurement processes in the public sector, the process for referring corruption allegations to law enforcement agencies, and the scope of New Zealand's bribery laws," Feeley told the daily.
